    I know so many of them. Things go wrong, and they'll blame anything and anybody apart from themselves. Then life keeps dumping more crap on them, and they still don't get it. They'll go to their grave thinking that everything and everybody was out to get them. So frustrating to...

    Nobody Else Will

    I can't expect someone else to take responsibility for me anymore, those days ended when I was just a teen. I own every thing I say and every thing I do. It's the only way to live a full life!
